It’s no secret that cold storage facilities are a huge investment for end users in the frozen food market. Ongoing operational cost, and energy costs in particular, are long-term considerations of any cold storage project. Cold storage architectural, engineering and construction know they must address these issues to secure project bids.
Energy demands in U.S. supermarkets are massive, with refrigeration and lighting accounting for over 50% of total energy use. Each year, the average American supermarket consumes roughly 50 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, and 50 cubic feet of natural gas per square foot. This translates into average annual energy costs of $200,000, and the emission of 1,900 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere--the equivalent of 360 vehicles.
